The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is the entrance exam for law schools. The majority of law schools require applicants to take this exam. The LSAT score weighs heavily in the admission process as do other factors, such as GPA, your essay and recommendations. A preparation course is an excellent way to prepare for sitting for this type of standardized test. Boston College is pleased to offer preparation courses on the Chestnut Hill campus. Our experienced and dedicated instructors will work with you to make your experience worthwhile and successful.

The LSAT exam format consists of four, 35-minute sections of multiple-choice questions including reading comprehension and both analytical and logical reasoning. There is also a 30 minute writing sample and an additional 35-minute unscored experimental section to test new questions. The test is approximately 3 1/2 hours in length and is scored on a scale from 120 to 180. The test is still a paper and pencil test and is only given four times a year.

The LSAT is designed to test your problem solving abilities in a very structured environment over a limited period of time. The questions in the specific sections focus on complex reading passages and your ability to understand them quickly with accuracy and insight; the ability to draw inferences from pertinent information; the analysis and evaluation of the reasoning arguments of others.

They are an invaluable resource and are accessible on line at
